I think your best bet is to just put a link on your management page 
directly to your plugin PHP file (or a secondary file in your plugin 
distribution, e.g. a link to 
(blogurl)/wp-content/plugins/myplugin_csv.php). That would bypass all 
the admin header stuff. Of course, don't assume that any WordPress 
files have been loaded! I don't think you can do what you want via the 
standard admin menus.
